POLL: Leonardo DiCaprio’s 5 Worst Movie Accents Of All Time

Leonardo DiCaprio's 5 Worst Movie Accents Ever

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most gifted, versatile and successful actors of our time. He’s become king of the (dramatic) world, and he did it despite delivering much of his dialogue in ridiculous accents. That’s talent! We love the guy, but sometimes the dialect is a tad bit distracting. We hope someday his director will stand up to him and scream “JUST READ THE DAMN LINES, LEO!” Thankfully, he seems to have reigned it in for The Great Gatsby, but for old times sake let’s revisit his past vocal travesties!

Adult Swim: The 10 Sexiest Pool Scenes In Movie History

10 sexiest pool scenes in movies

The Great Gatsby features one of the most iconic pool scenes in entertainment history -and if that’s a spoiler, well then shame on you for not doing your 9th grade English homework. Baz Luhrmann‘s big screen adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic opens wide this Friday (!), and just like Gatsby, our relationship with pools has been a mix of both pleasure and pain. Yes, it’s a rare and awesome chance to get a first-hand glimpse at seriously fit people putting their fab physique on display in revealing swimwear. But then it gets weird when people ask us why we’re swimming with our shirt on. “I’m cold” doesn’t work as well as you’d think. But in honor of the film’s release, we’ve decided to count down ten movie pool scenes where no one keeps their shirt on!

Katniss Everdeen, Clary Fray, Melanie Stryder & More: The 13 Heroines Who’ll Make 2013 Kick Ass

The Host, Catching Fire, Prodigy, City of Bones and more stories of great heroines in 2013

If you take stories like The Hunger Games, The Host and Warm Bodies to heart, you might think we don’t have much to look forward to in the distant post-apocalyptic future. But in the more immediate days ahead, like say, the rest of 2013, there’s a whole lot to be excited for — especially if you like ladies who kick ass, stand up for what they believe in and protect their loved ones at all costs. It’s going to be a great year for heroines in movies, on TV and in books — but not necessarily the easy-to-love/worship kind. Jennifer Lawrence‘s Katniss Everdeen (this year in Catching Fire), The Americans‘ Elizabeth (Keri Russell), Beautiful Creatures‘ Lena (Alice Englert) and The Great Gatsby’s Daisy (Carey Mulligan) are complex women and girls who don’t automatically know what’s right, and sometimes they have to choose saving themselves over saving the world. The Mortal Instruments‘ Clary Fray (Lily Collins), Shadow and Bones‘ Aline, Delirium’s Lena and Warm Bodies‘ Julie (Teresa Palmer) have a little self-discovery to do before they become full-fledged heroines. The Legend Trilogy’s June and The Host’s Wanderer/Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) have to navigate between worlds to figure out whom to fight for. And Oz‘s Glinda (Michelle Williams) and Ender’s Game’s Petra (Hailee Steinfeld) are ladies whose strength is obvious, but whose roles in the bigger picture remains to be seen. As for Chloe Moretz’s Hit Girl, who returns in this summer’s Kick-Ass 2 — she’s always going to be in a category all her own.

Whatever your favorite brand of strong female is, we hope you’re looking forward to seeing them in action as much as we are! Check them out in the gallery below, and plan your year accordingly!

The Great Gatsby Trailer Released, Reveals Just What A Massive, Lavish Production It Is

This definitely is a Baz Luhrmann movie, is the first thought that crossed my mind when I saw this newly released trailer for The Great Gatsby. The clip’s only two and a half minutes but leaves your brain scrambling to process the series of lavish visuals thrown together. As the opening bars of The Throne’s “No Church in the Wild” plays and Tobey Maguire begins narrating, “New York, 1922. The tempo of the city had changed sharply. The buildings were higher, parties were bigger, the morals were looser …”  the screen explodes into fireworks and scenes from a decadent party that are quite reminiscent of Baz’s Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet. He’s always so particular about his costumes and production, isn’t he? Carey Mulligan looks divine in this, Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio is pitch perfect, and here’s the piece de resistance  — we didn’t know this until now, but the Bollywood legend, Amitabh Bachchan is playing the wolfish character of Meyer Wolfsheim, as you’ll see in the trailer. Apparently, Baz chased him down for the role. I’m still concerned about the chemistry between Leo and Carey as Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, but will reserve all judgement until I actually watch the film. Which I definitely will, as should you.

Leo DiCaprio “Got A Little Fat” On J. Edgar Set, Screenwriter Says

Much like Matt Damon in The Informant or Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones’ Diary, Leonardo DiCaprio was a consummate actor on the set of the upcoming J. Edgar. Or should we say Leo was a consuming actor, as according to the film’s screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, the actor packed on the lbs while portraying the infamous head of FBI. “Some of those pounds on later Hoover were not prosthetic. I’ll say it. Leo got a little fat,” Black revealed in DiCaprio’s New York Times profile, citing German chocolate cupcakes as Leo’s kryptonite. Look, the man works method! Leo probably read some obscure interview in which J. Edgar Hoover confessed an uncontrollable love of baked goods and he had to go for it. It’s all for his art!

Jowls aside, DiCaprio praised the movie’s make-up artist Sian Grigg for helping him transform into an elderly man for the film’s later scenes. “I’m sure she had multiple panic attacks trying to get me ready,” he reveals. “I could be quite squirmy.” Having had to spend two weeks in old man face, the Great Gatsby star admits, “To stay in character and to fight the urge not to rip it off at times and to not feel trapped inside it is extremely hard. It’s like you’ve been slathered in honey and wrapped in a giant duvet.” Mmmm, slathered in honey. Leo, no! Drop the comforter! No man can eat that much fabric and live!

Leonardo DiCaprio And Tobey Maguire Class Up Halloween On Great Gatsby Set

It’s Halloween, so every celeb on this site should be dressed up in an outrageous outfit. It’s the law or something! And our vote for classiest costume goes to Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. So what if it’s not for the holiday? The dudes look pretty damn dapper, so sue us!  The two actors were snapped on the set of Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby, wearing steller suits and driving a seriously old school car. We’d like to go trick-or-treating in that whip. Check out the gallery below for more.
